Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Canonbury

We are purchasing a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Canonbury who is on the TSB solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for TSB . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Canonbury.

I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Canonbury?

You should check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel lawyers if you want the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the mortgage company to check if they make available a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Canonbury.

How does conveyancing in Canonbury differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Canonbury approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Canonbury tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Canonbury or who has acted in the same development.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Canonbury. I have land on a site which seems to have the perfect answer If it is possible to get all this stuff completed via phone that would be ideal. Should I be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

If all goes to plan we aim to complete the sale of our £125,000 maisonette in Canonbury next week. The management company has quoted £324 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Canonbury?

Canonbury conveyancing on leasehold flats normally necessitates fees being invoiced by freeholders :

    Completing pre-exchange enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Canonbury Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Canonbury leasehold premises is £350. For Canonbury conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply answers.

After months of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Canonbury. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Canonbury flat is 5C Stoke Newington Road in April 2010. the Tribunal therefore concludes that the premium to be paid for the extended lease is £700.00 This case related to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 80.5 years.
